The make-and-take craft table is open from noon-2:30 p.m., and docents are available to give mini-tours of the museum. Then it's open house in the galleries until 4:30 p.m.

6PM to 9PM Free. Orlando Urban Sketchers Pulse Sketch Outing.  Pulse 1912 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32806.  With the sunset at 7:35 pm this evening should offer time to sketch during this golden hour.
Bring your sketchbook, sketch pad, colors, pens and pencils and join us for an evening of reflection and creativity. Also consider bringing a folding stool along.
We will meet At the Pulse sign. The makeshift memorial occupies the entire sidewalk in from of the nightclub. Cement construction baricades protect people from the Orange Avenue traffic. There is no shade, so bring a hat, sunscreen and maybe even an umbrella. The site has become a place where tourists and locals pay their respects and leave something behind.
Pulse is a gay bar, dance club, and nightclub in Orlando, Florida, founded in 2004 by Barbara Poma and Ron Legler. On June 12, 2016, the club gained international attention as it was the scene of the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in U.S. history, and the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the events of September 11, 2001. 49 people were killed and 53 were injured.
We will look for stories to document in our sketchbooks, sharing three hours of inspiration with people with the same passion for drawing. No previous experience in sketching is required. Invite friends or family members, whoever likes to sketch from direct observation.
This gathering does not include onsite instructions and it is free of charge to all participants. Thor, of Analog Artist Digital World, will be hosting this sketch outing.
After we are done sketching we will head across the street to Einstein Brothers Begals (1901 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL) to get a drink and or bite, and share our sketches.
Looking forward to seeing you,
The Orlando Urban Sketchers team

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
